Type of a scam Tax Collection

Someone with a foreign accent called and said they are an attorney with the IRS and that they were trying to collect on a debt. They got upset and hung up on us when we accused them of being a scam and told them the call was being recorded.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Recording left on VM telling me to call back an IRS agent when I did the only info I gave him was my name. He claimed I owed $500 to them and I needed to sent up a new gmail account to pay it. He would not allow me to go onto the IRS website to verify what he was claiming. He also stated they sent 2 certified notices to my home, which I did not receive. He had an accent and it was difficult to understand him. The connection on the phone was horrible as well. It may have been a cell phone he was using. He kept me on the phone for half an hour and when I called him out on this being a scam he threatened that 3 agents were on their way to my house with an arrest warrant.

I received a call from 347-394-1629 telling me that I needed to return the call immediately regarding an IRS tax collection issue. I called and the person stated his name was Stanis Brown, GS# 41520, DC#1811. He told me that an audit of my taxes had been conducted and that I owed in excess of $4K. Told me that I would be arrested if I didn't pay. Told me I had to either pay the amount before I hung up the phone or face legal and criminal charges.

Type of a scam Phishing

Telling me that I have a law suit against me from the I.R.S. I call them and when I start asking questions about the problem they disconnect. Then I call back and get a recording that number can not be reached at this time. I'm pretty sure the IRS will not contact me in this manner I think it will be by postal service if they need me.

Claims to be IRS bringing lawsuit

Victim Location 20169
Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a phone call/vmm from 270-576-7261 (Glasgow, KY), the message went as follows:

The reason of this call is to inform you that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against you. To get more information about this case file, please call immediately 270-576-7261. Thank you.

I knew immediately that it was a scam because this is probably the 10th one I've received but all different telephone numbers. I called the number back and it took the person about 15 rings to pick up and then he was foreign and I'm almost 100% positive he was overseas. I specifically told him to take me off of his list and that I'm turning him in to as many federal agencies as I could and then I hung up.

Victim Location 18944
Type of a scam Debt Collections

I had two calls claiming to be the IRS which left me an automated message claiming that they were opening an official case against me after a number of attempts which I never received prior to these messages. Another red flag was both messages were automated. I did attempt to call the first number back prior to the second message and an individual answered that was less than helpful; requesting information (name and address) from me before even giving me any information. I had to ask for his name, he did not speak english well, and I ended up hanging up on him before giving him my social.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Three messages on my answering machine said it was the IRS with a final notice of a law suit against me then said to return the call at #202-754-8466. When I called the number, I told the man to take my number off his list and do not call again. He said that he would if I pay him $90. I said I would call the police and he told me to go ahead! His voice was broken English and sounded like someone possibly from India. On my caller ID, the number showed up as #786-732-5443, so I called this number and the same man possibly answered. I said to take my number off his list and do not call again. He kept saying it was his sister calling me and repeated himself then I hung up.
